Peter Garrett In Conversation With Wesley Enoch

Avid Reader Bookshop and Cafe says
Join us at The Greek Club where Queensland Theatre Company Artistic Director Wesley Enoch will be in-conversation with Peter Garrett discussing his memoir, 'Big Blue Sky: A Memoir' (Allen & Unwin Books).

Peter Garrett’s life has been deeply felt and fully lived. A man of boundless energy, compassion, intelligence and creativity, he has already achieved enough to fill several lives.

From his idyllic childhood growing up in the northern suburbs of Sydney, to an early interest in equality and justice; from the height of 1960s culture shock at ANU to fronting iconic Australian band Midnight Oil; from his time as a galvanising activist for the environment to being the only unaligned Cabinet Minister in two Labor governments, Garrett has an extraordinary story to tell.

He writes movingly about Australia’s environment and its First Peoples, about his love for his family and his passion for our country: what it means to him and what it can become.

Provocative, entertaining, impassioned and inspiring, this memoir goes to the heart and soul of a fascinating Australian and raises questions crucial to us all.
